Focus on health proves a success

The recent Health Awareness Day held at Wooler, which was organised by the patient groups of both the Cheviot Medical Group and Glendale Surgery, has been hailed as a great success.

The purpose of the day was to provide information so people can make informed decisions about the best way to stay healthy and manage conditions.

More than 100 people attended and the organisers received very positive feedback from them and the health professionals who were present.

The patient groups would like to thank everyone who donated in any way, all the health professionals and organisations, Roddam WI for excellent catering and, not least, members of the public who attended.

The raffle raised £268, which, together with a donation from Roddam WI, is to be used to buy a defibrillator training unit.
